What Restraints are Manufacturers of Automotive Chrome Accessories Facing?

“Easy Availability of Affordable Plating Materials Act as Substitute”

Rising health concerns regarding the usage of chrome for plating nickel, coupled with deteriorating chrome supply, is evolving as a replacement for hard chrome plating done in automotive chrome accessories. Several automakers and metal finishing providers are shifting to nickel-based alloys as they offer the advantage of being an efficient corrosion-resistant alternative.

Moreover, consumers are widely accepting nickel as it serves as an under coat, effective top coat, and provides a kind of unique silver white finish to the vehicle.

As such, chrome-plated accessories are estimated to see market growth decline by 0.7X owing to the presence of alternatives such as media-blasting powder coating, bare metal coating, creative plating, DIY plating, spray-on-plating, and durable ABS plastic.
